TUCSON, AZ - Tucson police say an officer shot a 17-year-old boy after he pulled a gun on the officer during a foot chase.
Police spokesman Sgt. Chris Widmer says the teen and a 20-year-old man were spotted Sunday morning near a home where a woman complained about people who were ringing her door bell but wouldn't identify themselves.
Widmer says the two fled in different directions when approached by officers.
Widmer says the 20-year-old was eventually caught, while the 17-year-old ran into a yard and later pulled a gun on the officer.
The teen's injury wasn't life-threatening.
It's not known whether the teen fired on the officer, who wasn't hurt.
Investigators are trying to determine what the pair was doing in the area around 6:25 a.m. Sunday.
